As I write this post I feel that I have so many things to say all at once but cannot type fast enough to express them all! I am so excited to write the inaugural post of this blog because it feel as if I have been waiting for a long time to do so. And what was stopping me you might ask? Well really just logistical things and the fact that I have this uncanny notion that everything should be in place before a first step is taken. But I have been dutifully cured of that… as least I hope. A friend of mine encouraged me to stop making goals to do things in the future and just do them now. And I must say he is more than correct. As a great poet once said “Take chances, make mistakes, get messy”! For those of you who watched PBS Kids in the 90s know that the great poet that I refer to is none other than Ms. Frizzle the star of Magic School Bus. Faith in the same way demands you to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy. It is letting go of reason to an extent and letting the unknown guide you. It is also fitting that I should quote the Magic School Bus, considering that my predecessor in the Berthold Fellowship voiced one of the characters on the show. So I have successfully connected all those thoughts in what started, to me at least, as an extremely rando post. I will take that as a sign to end this post here and leave you with this quote to contemplate until I join you again.
